Letters and Opinions

These are opinion pieces that I have had published in a variety of newspapers and magazines. I have been writing letters-to-the-editor since 2006, and have had over 160 published since then. I also play guitar and sing in a musical revue called The Loser's Lounge. With a cast of guest singers, we perform tributes to great songwriters and bands. The show is in its 22th year, and we perform at Joe's Pub - The Public Theater and Lincoln Center in New York City.

Ho, ho, ho! amNY published my 100th letter on November 17, 2009. Here is the complete text.

The Christmas marketing season is now upon us, and subway advertisements featuring St. Nick and those kringle kickers, the Rockettes, once again promise a white Christmas. Perhaps one year Radio City will display a Santa of color. While some may cry "PC!" at the suggestion, I think most would embrace the act with unequivocal holiday cheer.
